About Louisa Spring

I love this house which I bought last year. It has new air conditioning and pool equipment as well as a resurfaced pool that is enormous!

Louisa Spring purchased this house in 2013

Why Louisa Spring chose California Desert

My parents always visited Palm Desert and I just love relaxing by the pool. I just could see myself by the pool with a martini when I walked through the door!

What makes this house unique

really a unique property as it has mid century architcture and what is known as a butterfly roof!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed there with my family for three nights. The house is wonderful, it's just the right size for a family with small children. My little ones loved the 'secret' third bedroom with the bunkbeds. My husband and I were impressed with how clean and well maintained the house was, everything was impeccable. The house is well equipped with modern appliances that made our stay super easy. THE POOL is awesome, even though the house is in the middle of a neighborhood, the pool area feels so private and secluded. The owner has pool floats available for the guest which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Great family-friendly home right near everything!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two dogs and I loved our stay at this beautiful home well located to El Paseo, a great coffee shop (Indian Wells coffee), awesome restaurants and easy access to everything the desert has to offer.

The home was well equipped with everything you need to cook, eat, rest and relax. Loved sitting out by the private pool while our dogs lounged within a fully gated yard.

Would definitely come back!

This house is more or less a dump

  • 1 of 5

This property is extremely misrepresented in her ad.

Mold in bathroom ceiling, filthy windows and blinds are falling down, chinks in the paint on the walls, living room furniture pretty worn, the "3rd" bedroom is actually a closet with bunkbeds

in it - not to code! Previous renters had cooked fish or something in the oven and it boiled over creating a horrible smell for about a week. The patio table was a beat up folding Costo table. A broken table, lounges and other assorted trash and debris were piled up in the side yard - a policeman came to the door and issued a citation for the owner because the neighbors complained about the mess. The owner wanted us to allow workmen in to fix the mold issue - we were less than pleased because this was our vacation and we did not want to wait around for guys who may or may not have shown up. The first go around they did not show at all. If you rent from her, READ the contract carefully - she charges you for ALL of the utilities. She charged us $1000.00. We did not use or heat the pool . This included electric, gas, water, cable TV, etc. The only good thing I can say about this experience is that the pool is nice.

I would never consider renting from this owner again.

Owner's Response: This guest was the absolute worst I have ever dealt with in all my renting experience. I have never had a citation. Yes there was a patch in the bathroom that needed fixing and she all but made it impossible to fix it. There is no trash. I never say there is a 3rd bedroom and it is to code but it is not in the ad as a 3 bedroom for the very reason that it is a bunk bed room. They stayed over 2.5 months and she had all the bills showing what she used when she was there. I charge cable, electricity and gas for long time renters and they knew that going in. The house is in excellent shape and I do not have a worn out Costco table. It was there one day when the winds broke the original table and was replaced. She is a vicious and unpleasant woman and she had never contacted me about the kitchen or anything else. I have responsible cleaners who would never leave the house that way.

Comfortable, clean and easy

This place was great, very clean and spacious. It was very easy from booking the property, to checking out, and everything in between. Great place to stay and plenty of beds for everyone to sleep in.

Cute house!

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect! It was close to shadow mountain, where we play tennis. It was close to El Paseo. The kitchen, master bath and backyard were a nice plus.

Everyone was happy:)

I would definitely stay here again.

Dirty House

  • 2 of 5

Although the house had a great location near El Paseo Drive, it was a huge disappointment. We arrived to find that the fridge had not been cleaned at all. Sour, spilled milk covered several of the shelves of the door and there were bits of food pieces and crumbs throughout the fridge. We also found bits of food stuck to the pots and pans in various drawers. The master bathroom had hair in the shower and on the floor from the previous guests. The patio doors looked like they hadn't been cleaned in at least 6 months. We suspect the owners do not live in Palm Springs and simply pay a maid service to come and clean the house. It looks like the maids gave the bathrooms and kitchen a quick very (and poor) wipe down, but that is about it. The wifi and the phone did not work. We managed to fix the wifi, but couldn't ever get a dial tone on the phone. This was frustrating as we are from Canada, so we ended up paying long distance fees to use our cell phone to make local calls.

The house and the yard both need some love. If the house was actually cleaned, it could be an okay place to stay. Unfortunately, my husband and I were both so turned off by what we did see, we often wondered what we weren't seeing and as a result, did not enjoy our stay. We gave this place 2 stars as it is in a good location and a quiet neighbourhood. The house is well equipped with dishes, etc, the master bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. The major con as noted above is lack of cleanliness. Also, it's a very dark house as most of the light switches don't work.

We paid a lot of money to stay here, which added to our disappointment. For the same price, we could have stayed at the Marriott. The owner was pleasant and responsive when booking, but when it came time to get our deposit returned, we waited 2 weeks and didn't see anything returned. I emailed the owner, who promptly returned it, but it was a pain that I had to follow up with her and ask for it back. We would not stay here again (even if it was clean) and we do not recommend it. It was really overpriced for what you got.

Owner's Response: I have never had this kind of review ever happen before and I do not understand this guest's motivation. I have a house manager on call for guests and they can always call him or me during their stay with any problems. They did not call either of us. The cleaning service has also never had any problems before. The wifi and home line phone work as do the light switches. I always refund the deposit within a week. I am literally baffled by this renter and would certainly never rent to her again. Yes she can go to the Marriot but they would not have the same space, privacy or amenities. I have only had an amazing time at my house and I have never encountered any of these problems before.
